While coupon searching for my dad's POS's upcoming service, I happen to find this golden gem.

Rectangle Font Parallel Magenta Brand


This gave me a thought of, if dealers are willing to go this low for an OC, what is the point of doing an OC DIY in your own garage other than the satisfaction of doing the job correctly. Although this coupon states good for 5w-30 oil, a 5 qrt jug of 5w30 at Walmart is like $20 on rollback; $22 for 0w-20 oil. Add an filter and your DIY cost is $30 right out the door just for these two alone.

But like from a business standpoint, if a dealer sells 5 qrts at $9.99, how much loss OR profit are they taking?

I was about to use that coupon at the rip-off stealership near to my Honda dealer (a whole new thread about that, later). But damn, I am good at negotiating prices for service. Took the Rogue in because its battery kicked the can at 18,937 miles, and got me an Mobil 1 Super Synthetic 0w-20 5 qrts including labor for $25. Granted the master tech was doing a bunch of warranty work on it.
